Suicide Squad Crushes Box Office with $135 Million Debut

The next iteration in the DC universe, Suicide Squad, easily crushed the competition this weekend with $135.1 million.  The bad reviews (26% Tomatometer), for the most part, didn't deter audiences.  However, it probably could have done a lot better if it wasn't getting ripped apart by critics.  We'll see if it has legs, when next weekend comes around.

Suicide Squad has also grossed $132 million overseas for $267.1 million total worldwide.

Jason Bourne slipped over 60% ($22.7 million) to second place, which is going to prove a far cry from the last Matt Damon led Bourne movie Bourne Ultimatum ($227.5 domestic take).
